'Corn' in the Bible
Later on, a man arrived from Baal-shalishah, bringing the man of God some bread as a first fruit offering. He had 20 loaves of barley and ripe ears of corn in his sack. So Elisha said, "Give them to the people so they can eat."
They're exalted momentarily, but then they are gone; they are humbled, just like all the others. They are cut down like heads of corn.
